The blood from a dismembered New Jersey woman who washed up on Saturday in Brooklyn, has allegedly been discovered in her boyfriend’s bathtub.
Police have now confirmed that Jennifer Londono, 31, of Englewood – who was reported missing on June 25 – is the tattooed corpse.
They have been interviewing her boyfriend as part of their investigation, but apparently a source told the New York Post there has been some “inconsistencies” regarding his story.
Last week, her headless and decomposing body was discovered floating near the rocks off Pier 44 in Red Hook, Brooklyn.
The body was identified after police released a photo to the public of a tattoo the corpse had on its right hip. Londono’s mother came to the 76th Precinct station house Thursday, saying her daughter had the same tattoo in the exact same place.
Only a few days later, a leg was found floating in the Hudson River near the Upper West Side, near the W 79th Street Boat Basin by a passing jogger who informed the police around 12.35pm.
It had pink painted toenails and did not appear to be decomposed, New York Daily News reported. DNA from the leg will be compared with DNA from the torso to confirm that the leg is from the same woman.
Cops are still searching for the rest of her body, police said Monday.
Londono was last seen closing up the Luna Lounge, on Armory Street in Englewood New Jersey. She was reported missing on June 25.
NYPD Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce said Friday: ‘That young lady is from New Jersey and there’s an active homicide case going right now.”
The homicide case is ongoing in New Jersey.
Witnesses who saw the torso in the Red Hook channel on June 27 said the ‘butchered’ corpse looked as though it was deliberately mutilated.
“The woman wasn’t just murdered — she was butchered,” the man who found the body told the Post.
The torso had been cut at the knees and the woman’s intestines were out.
He and his wife saw the dismembered and naked body floating in the water as they walked their dog at around 11am last Tuesday.
Family and friends have posted tributes to the beautiful 31-year-old victim, and demanded justice.
